Ra Ra Riot played numerous Fender Guitars during two homecoming gigs in New York this week.

The indie-rock group took to the stage at the Bowery Ballroom for two sold-out concerts, which saw the band play material from albums such as The Orchard, according to the official Fender blog.

Although the band have played at the venue a number of times during their career, it was the first night that singer Wesley Miles had also played the guitar at a concert in the city.

Spinner quotes the frontman as telling the crowd: "Now that I said that, I'm going to be a lot more nervous."

The review said that the musician was "relaxed and disarming" during the show, while the man behind the drum kit, Gabriel Duquette, "packed more of a punch".

Ra Ra Riot used numerous Fender guitars to make the record, including the American Vintage '62 Jazzmaster and American Vintage '62 Custom Telecaster.
